Gullane Athletic AFC will be holding a football festival on Saturday 11th August.
On Saturday 21st May Gullane Athletic U14 played Currie Star Colts in the final of the Charles Kilvin Cup having beaten Eyemouth United, Edinburgh United and Craigroyston BC along the way. In the first half the Gullane players saw their nerves get the better of them and they didn't play anywhere near the level that that they had in the last few weeks. At half time the score was Currie Star Colts 2 - 0 Gullane Athletic. The players raised it a level in the second half and had numerous chances including a controversially disallowed goal. They finally put one in after a well worked period of play. The final score was Currie Star Colts 3 - 1 Gullane Athletic.
The Gullane 2008 team are playing Musselburgh Windsor this Sunday at home. Speaking to Sky Sports, Mike Spink the Gullane Coach commented that "Musselburgh are a strong side and we hope to see as many people as possible down to get behind the team. It promises to be a close one."
Football training for all kids born in 2010, 2011 and 2012 starts up again on Sunday 20th August down at the Memorial Ground next to the primary school. Any girls or boys who fancy giving it a try are welcome to come along this Sunday to practice their skills and play a few four-a-side matches. We'll be playing on the grass, and trainers are fine at this time of the year. There is no charge for the first few weeks whilst the kids discover the game and work out if football is for them. All levels of skill very welcome.
As a Club we are so proud that the festival was a huge success. It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying playing and watching football in our village. The main aim of the day was to raise funds for Team Poppy, and we are pleased to let everyone know that the total is currently over £12,000. A huge thank you to all the people who made the day a success by helping out, playing in the teams, and donating prizes. All of this couldn’t have been achieved without the generous support of individuals, football clubs, and local businesses and companies including; Belhaven Brewery Bidvest catering & Food Suppliers Bostock Bakery of North Berwick Central Produce Fruit & Veg Distell Spirits Emma Martin Photography Enterprise Van Hire First Call…
